A Study In Street Style: Irina Lakicevic
A dentist AND a street style star AND an editor? How? Whaaa? We don't know how she does it, but here's what we do know – she's a bonafide source of style inspo.| March 8, 2018
They say the best runway is the one on the streets. The runway is where the official action happens, but it is on the streets that real style, worn by real people, is born. In “A Study In Street Style”, we turn the spotlight on some of the most notable street style stars of industry. If ever you’re dry on outfit inspiration, just check back here. We guarantee you’ll leave with at least a handful of styling ideas. That, or your (imaginary) money back.
Meet Irina Lakicevic, the chicest dentist you will ever come across. Not only does she frequently appear on the pages of Vogue.com, the Serbian-born is also the editor of MINT Journal, which she also founded. Double life? Pah. She’s practically living a triple life and we applaud her for being able to juggle all that at once.
Minimalistic “rock-chic” is what she uses to describe her style, one that is often punctuated with patent leather, studded black boots and oversized, boxy blazers, but we see a certain masculine-meets-feminine flair as well. Because she’s based in Norway, the bad weather pushes her to dress more creatively, resulting in outfits that have layers and layers of different textures. According to her widely documented street style looks, jeans and a black crew neck are absolute staples, mixed in with designer statement pieces and vintage finds.
Lakicevic has a way of making you see that staples are truly the coolest and most worthwhile things you can have in your wardrobe. Then, she mixes and styles them in ways that emit a certain French flair of effortless cool. A bow in her hair to go with a Chanel backpack. A midi skirt with an oversized blazer. A silk dress over a turtleneck, paired with a huge bag instead of the usual micro bag. A simple button down and jeans combo, uplifted with earrings and a headband. Simple style tricks that you don’t really think of – until this multi-hyphenate does it.
